Rendering a composition on the command line


Creating a picture of your composition’s nodes and cables

Using the vuo-render command, you can render a picture of your composition:

    vuo-render --output-format=pdf --output RenderTextLayer.pdf RenderTextLayer.vuo

vuo-render can output either raster (PNG) or vector (PDF or SVG) files. The command vuo-render --help provides a complete list of parameters.

Since composition files are in DOT format, you can also render them without Vuo styling using Graphviz:

    dot -Grankdir=LR -Nshape=Mrecord -Nstyle=filled -Tpng -oRenderTextLayer.png RenderTextLayer.vuo
